We do not diagnose disease or recommend a dietary supplement for the treatment of disease. You should share this information with your physician who can determine what nutrition, disease and injury treatment regimen is best for you.  You can search this site or the web for topics of interest that I may have written (use Dr Simone and topic).

CHRONIC TRAUMATIC ENCEPHALOPATHY (CTE) IN PLAYERS OF AMERICAN FOOTBALL

Lawrenceville, NJ (Dr Simone) – Vince Lombardi said, “Football is not a contact sport, it is a collision sport.”  A new study, the largest of several, affirms that statement.  202 deceased American football players donated their brains for research.   Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), brain damage, was diagnosed at autopsy in 177 players across all levels of play (87%), including 110 of 111 former National Football League players (99%)  (JAMA. 2017;318(4):360-370. doi:10.1001/jama.2017.8334).

SUPPLEMENT and PHYSICAL SUPPORT

Nutritional Hydration – SIMONE SUPER ENERGY.  When a person is dehydrated, there is less spinal fluid that normally functions to keep the brain afloat and thereby separates it from the skull.  So when the head is hit, the risk of contusion/concussion (black and blue) to the brain is higher with less spinal fluid.

Antioxidants and B vitamins – ONCCOR

Amino Acids – AMINO PLUS

Anti-inflammatory: Omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA

Vitamin D3 – 5,000 IU per day with food

Magnesium 500 mg per day 

Refrigerated Probiotic

Make sure the helmet fits properly and strengthen the neck, core and back muscles.
